Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread Recipe
This is a great bread for seed lovers, one of the tastiest I've tried.
I made this bread today and it is delicious. I often make flax seed bread, but the sunflowers in this made it really nutty tasting. I also doubled the recipe, and made it by hand instead of the bread machine. I used mostly whole wheat flour, added a bit more yeast and a couple tablespoons of my homemade dough enchancer. My husband love it. This is a keeper. Lorraine Sturgis
Very good. Used flax seed meal instead of flax seed (added it at time of flour).
I loved it! I did take it out of the breadmaker and finished off in the oven into two smaller round loaves (one to share). It's just what I was looking for in a dense, nutty bread. Thanks!
Wonderful bread -- half of it was eaten in the first hour! Since the dough was a little wet I added dry milk to get it to the proper consistency -- that really made the bread extra rich and moist. And all that flax seed makes it good for my cholesterol!
rose well and came out light and fluffy the first time i made it and thats never happened to me before, always having to tweek recipes for my machine, weather, ingredients, skill, etc. ill def grind the seeds the next time for a better texture. i omit the sunflower seeds btw.
All I can say is - Wow! An artisan type bread for a fraction of the cost at your local bakery. A few slight modifications: used margarine rather than butter; used the dough cycle on the bread machine and baked the loaf at 350 degrees for approx. 30 minutes; needed to add a bit more whole wheat flour during the mix/knead cyle; and brushed with melted margarine once it came out of the oven. Delicious and a definite recipe box keeper!! Thanks for the great recipe, Erna.
I made this bread and it tastes great, wonderful. Though the second time I made it, I only added one tablespoon of honey instead of 3 and it tastes even better. Not so sweet.
I don't have a bread maker, so I altered the recipe a bit. I combined 2 cups of warm water, 6 Tbsp of honey, and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. I combined 3 cups of wheat bread flour with 2 cups white bread flour, added 2 tsp of dry instant yeast(no proofing required), 1.5 tsp salt. I then added about 1/3 cup cracked wheat, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, and 1/2 cup of mixed whole and ground flax seeds. I combined the wet and dry ingredients; stirred until everything was moistened. I let it rise for about 3 hours until it was doubled in size. I then split it into two equal parts, and gently kneaded it for a bit. Shaped it into small loaf shapes, put them into the bread pans, and let them rise again for a few more hours until they're filling the pan. Baked them at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. They turned out perfectly! This bread is awesome :)
